Important
Safety Instructions
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using
the range, follow basic precautions, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the
range.
2. Install or locate the range only in
accordance with the provided
Installation Instructions. It is
recommended that the range be
installed by a qualified installer. The
range must be properly connected to
electrical supply and grounded.
3. To reduce the risk of tipping of the
appliance, the appliance must be
secured by properly installed anti-tip
bracket(s). To check if the bracket(s)
is installed properly, remove the
storage drawer (see page 8) and
verify that the anti-tip bracket(s) is
engaged.
4. DO NOT operate the range if it is not
working properly, or if it has been
damaged.
5. DO NOT use the range for warming
or heating the room. Persons could
be burned or injured, or a fire could
start.
6. Use the range only for its intended
use as described in this manual.
7. DO NOT wear loose or hanging
garments when using the range.
They could ignite if they touch a
surface unit and you could be
burned.
8. Make sure the reflector bowls are in
place during cooking. Cooking
without reflector bowls may subject
the wiring and components
underneath them to damage.
9. DO NOT line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these liners
may result in a risk of electric shock
or fire.

15.
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may be
hot even though they are dark in
color. Areas near surface units and
interior surfaces of an oven become
hot enough to cause burns. During
and after use, DO NOT touch, or let
clothing or other flammable
materials contact surface units,
areas near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven until they
have had sufficient time to cool.
Other surfaces of the range may
become hot enough to cause burns;
such as, the oven vent opening, the
surface near the vent opening, the
cooktop, the oven door and window.
Select a pan with a flat bottom that
is about the same size as the surface
unit. If pan is smaller than the
surface unit, some of the heating
element will be exposed and may
result in the igniting of clothing or
potholders. Correct pan size also
improves cooking efficiency.
Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface units. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable materials, and
spills due to bumping of the pan.
Use only dry potholders. Moist or
damp potholders on hot surfaces
may result in burns from steam. DO
NOT let potholder touch hot heating
elements. DO NOT use a towel or
bulky cloth for a potholder. They
could catch on fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of glass,
glass-ceramic, ceramic, earthenware
or other glazed utensils are suitable
for cooktops without breaking due to
the sudden change in temperature.
DO NOT heat unopened containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
mlury.
16. Grease is flammable and should be
handled carefully. Let fat cool
before attempting to handle it. DO
NOT allow grease to collect
around cooktop or in vents. Wipe
spill-overs immediately.
17. DO NOT use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan.
Smother flaming pan on range by
covering with a well-fitted lid,
cookie sheet or flat tray. Flaming
grease outside of pan can be
extinguished with baking soda or,
if available, a multipurpose dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher
18. Never leave surface units
unattended at high heat settings. f
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs tha
may ignite.
19. Make sure surface units are off
when you are finished, and when
you aren’t watching.
20. Use care when opening oven door.
Let hot air or steam escape before
removing or replacing food.
2 1. Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is cool.
If racks must be removed while
oven is hot, do not let potholder
contact hot heating element in
oven.
22. DO NOT store flammable materials
on or near the range. They could
explode or burn.
23. DO NOT store things children
might want above the range.
Children could be burned or injurec
while climbing on it.
24. DO NOT leave children alone or
unattended in area where the
range is m use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any
part of the range. They could be
burned or injured.
25. Keep range vents unobstructed.
26. Clean your range regularly. See
care and cleaning instructions in
this manual.
27. Be sure all
. range parts are cool
30. DO NOT use oven cleaners. No
commercial oven cleaner or oven
liner protective coating of any kind
should be used in or around any
part of the oven.
31. Before self-cleaning the oven,
remove broiler pan, broiler grid,
oven racks and other utensils. Do
not use your oven to clean
miscellaneous parts.
28. DO NOT soak removable heating
elements in water. The element
will be damaged and shock or fire
could result.
29. DO NOT clean door heat seal. It is
essential for a good seal. Care
should be taken not to rub,
damage, or move the seal. Clean
only parts recommended in this
Use and Care Guide.
32. DO NOT repair or replace any part
of the range unless specifically
recommended in this manual. All
other servicing should be referred
to a qualified technician.
33. Disconnect the electrical supply
before servicing the range.

Using Your Range
Using the surface
units
Control knobs must be pushed in
before turning them to a setting. They
can be set anywhere between HI and
OFF.
Surface unit markers
The solid dot in the surface unit marker
shows which surface unit is turned on
by that knob.
Solid element surface units are made of
heavy cast-iron to provide even cooking.
Each surface unit has a built-in
protective limiter as a safety feature.
The limiter senses uneven cooking
temperatures and automatically reduces
the heat level. The limiter will sense
uneven heat when a pan boils dry or
when a pan is removed and the surface
unit is left on. The heat level may also
be reduced automatically if the bottom
of the pan is not flat or if the pan is too
large or too small for the element. This
will result in longer cooking times.
Solid elements hold heat longer than
conventional surface units. For best
cooking results, use a high setting for
only a short period of time. Then use a
lower setting to complete the cooking.
You may want to turn the solid element
surface unit OFF a few minutes before
you finish cooking.
Signal lights
Pans should be the same size or larger
than the surface unit to prevent boilovers and hot handles.
The Surface Unit Signal Light on the
control panel will glow when a surface
unit is on.
Until you get used to the settings, use
the following as a guide. For best
results, start cooking at the high
settings, then turn the control knob
down to continue cooking.
Use a high setting to start food cooking;
to bring liquids to a boil.
Use a medium-high setting to hold a
rapid boil; to fry chicken or pancakes.
Use a medium setting for gravy,
puddings and icing; to cook large
amounts of vegetables.
Use a medium-low setting to keep food
cooking after starting it on a higher
setting.
Use a low setting to keep food warm
until ready to serve. Set the heat higher
or lower within the low band to keep
food at the temperature you want.
Solid element surface units
(Model FES375V)
Before using a solid element surface unit
for the first time, heat on high setting for
five minutes. The surface unit will give
off smoke as the protective coating,
applied at the factory, finishes bonding
to the surface.

Cookware
Burn, Fire And
Property Damage Hazard
1Be sure all control knobs are
turned to OFF and all signal
lights are off when you are not
cooking. Someone could be
burned or a fire could start if a
surface unit is accidentally left
on.
. Solid elements stay hot for a long
time. Do not use the high setting
for long periods of time or leave
pans on hot elements when
cooking is done. Burned food and
damage to the cookware could
result.
Use only flat-bottomed utensils. Flat
bottoms allow maximum contact
between the pans and surface units for
fast, even cooking. Pans with uneven
bottoms or with raised patterns on the
bottoms are not suitable. Do not use
trivets, woks with skirts, or canners
with concave or ridged bottoms.
To check your cookware for flatness,
place a straight-edge across the bottom
of each piece. Rotate the straight-edge
across the bottom. If light shows
anywhere between the pan and the
straight-edge. the pan is not flat. Do not
use it.
Burn And Product Damage Hazard
. If the pan is too small for the
surface unit, you could be burned
by the heat from the exposed
section of the surface unit. Use
correctly sized cooking utensils to
prevent injury.
.If a coil surface unit stays red for
a long time, the bottom of the pan
is not flat enough or is too small
for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect utensils for
long periods of time can result in
damage to the surface unit,
cooktop, wiring and surrounding
areas. To prevent damage, use
correct utensils, start cooking on
high setting and turn control
down to continue cooking.

Oven vent
/
To avoid sickness and food waste
when using delay start:
.Do not use foods that will spoil
while waiting for cooking to start,
such as dishes with milk or eggs,
cream soups, and cooked meats or
fish. Any food that has to wait for
cooking to start should be very
cold or frozen before it is put in
the oven. MOST UNFROZEN
FOODS SHOULD NEVER STAND
MORE THAN TWO HOURS
BEFORE COOKING STARTS.
. Do not use foods containing
baking powder or yeast when
using delay start. They will not
rise properly.
.Do not allow food to remain in
oven for more than two hours
after end of cooking cycle.
Hot air and moisture escape from the
oven through a vent under the right rear
surface unit (or under the backguard on
Model FES375V with solid elements).
You can cook on the unit, or keep food
warm on it while the oven is on.
The vent is needed for air circulation.
Do not block the vent. Poor baking will
result.
Bum Hazard
When the oven is ON, pans and pan
handles left on or near the oven
vent can become hot, enough to
burn the user and to melt plastics.
Use potholders to move pans.
Never store plastics, paper or other
items that could melt or bum near
the oven vent.

Removing
3. Pull the surface unit straight away
from the receptacle.
4. Lift out the reflector bowl. See
Cleaning Chart on page 12 for
cleaning instructions.
Replacing
1. Make sure all surface units are
turned OFF.
2. Line up openings in the reflector
bowl with the surface unit
receptacle.
3. Hold the surface unit as level as
possible with the terminal just
started into the receptacle. Push
the surface unit terminal into the
receptacle.
4. When the terminal is pushed into
the receptacle as far as it will go,
the surface unit will fit into the
reflector bowl.
Reflector bowls reflect heat back to the
utensils on the surface units. They also
help catch spills. When they are kept
clean, they reflect heat better and look
new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some
of the utensils may not be flat enough,
or some may be too large for the surface
unit. In either case, some of the heat
that’s meant to go into or around a
utensil goes down and heats the
reflector bowl. This extra heat can
discolor it.
Fire And Electrical Shock Hazard
Do not line the reflector bowls with
1. Turn off all surface units and let
cool.
2. Lift the edge of the unit opposite the
receptacle, just enough to clear the
reflector bowl.
1. For best results, wipe off surface
units with a damp soft cloth and
soapy water after each use. Remove
burned-on food with a soap-filled
scouring pad. The red spot in the
center of the surface unit will
gradually wash off. This is normal
and will not affect the operation of
the surface unit.
IMPORTANT: Dry the element
completely after cleaning. Turn on
the element for a few minutes to
thoroughly dry. After the element
has cooled, use a paper towel to
apply a thin coat of salt-free oil to
the surface units to season and
restore the finish. Wipe excess oil off
stainless steel trim rings. Then heat
3 - 5 minutes. Some smoking may
occur; this is normal. If surface units
have dark spots caused by grease
and food, the oil treatment will
improve their appearance but not
eliminate the spots.
NOTE: Optional Electrol” dressing
can be applied to the surface units
to improve their appearance.
The stainless steel trim rings will
yellow from the heat of the surface
units and pans. This is normal. The
yellowing can be removed by using
stainless steel cleaner or Cook Top
Polishing Creme on the trim rings.

cooktop accidentally falling.
. Do not drop the cooktop. Damage
can result to the porcelain and the
cooktop frame.
2. Wipe surface under the cooktop
with warm soapy water. Use a
soap-filled plastic scouring pad on
heavily-sorled areas.
3. To lower the cooktop, lift cooktop
from both sides while pressing the

1. Clean the areas shown by hand.
They do not get hot enough during
the Self-Cleaning cycle for soil to
burn away. Use hot water and
detergent or a soapy steel wool pad
on...
. The inside of the door. (The center
area of the door does not need to
be hand cleaned.)
. The frame around the oven.
Do not clean, move or bend the
fiberglass seal. Poor cleaning and
poor baking will result.
2. Remove the broiler pan and any
pots and pans you may have stored
in the oven.
NOTE: The broiler pan (without
grid) can be cleaned in the oven
only if most of the soil has been
removed by hand-cleaning or a
dishwasher. The chrome broiler
grid will discolor if cleaned in the
Self-Cleaning cycle.
3. Wipe out any loose soil or grease.
This will help reduce smoke during
the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Setting
the controls
1. Make sure the Clock is set to the
right time of day. (See “Setting the
clock” on page 5.)
2. Move the Lock Lever all the way
to the right - the Clean position.
7. When the oven reaches normal
baking temperatures, the LOCK
and CLEAN indicators go off. Move
the Lock Lever back to the left. Do
not force it. Wait until it moves
easily.
8. After the oven is cool, wipe off any
residue or ash with a damp cloth. If
needed, touch up spots with a
soapy steel wool pad.
How it works
3. Push the Clean button. A 3-hour
Self-Cleaning cycle will be set
automatically. “3:OO” will show in
the large display. The CLEAN and
TIME indicators on the left side of
the display and the CLEAN and ON
indicators on the right side of the
display will come on.
NOTE: If the Clean button is
pushed when the door is not
latched, “door” will appear in the
large display. Move the Lock Lever
all the way to the right to latch the
door. If any other command button
is pushed when the door is latched,
the oven will not receive the
command. Move the Lock Lever
back to the left to unlatch the door
after the LOCK indicator goes off.
4. (Option) Delayed clean: Push the
Clean button. Immediately push
the Stop Time button. Immediately
turn the Time/Temp Set Knob to
the new stop time. The TIME and
STOP indicators will come on.
After the stop time has been set,
the large display will go back to
showing the current time-of-day.
To see the start time, push the
Clean button and hold it for 3
seconds.
5. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is
started, the LOCK indicator will
come on when the oven
temperature exceeds normal
baking temperatures. The Lock
Lever must not be moved and the
door cannot be opened when this
indicator is on.
6. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is
completed, the time-of-day will
show in the large display.
During the Self-Cleaning cycle, the oven
gets much hotter than it does for baking
or broiling...approximately
875°F (468°C)
This heat breaks up grease and soil and
burns it off.
Special tips
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated
during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors and
smoke.
Clean the oven before it gets
heavily soiled. Cleaning a very
soiled oven takes longer and results
in more smoke than usual.
If the Self-Cleaning cycle doesn’t
get the oven as clean as you
expected, the cycle may not have
been set long enough or you may
not have prepared the oven
properly. Set the Self-Cleaning cycle
longer the next time and hand clean
areas noted on page 10.
To stop the Self-Cleaning
cycle
at any time:
1. Press the CLEAN button and turn
the Time/Temp Set Knob until
“0:OO” shows in the large display.
2. When the LOCK and CLEAN
indicators go off, move the Lock
Lever back to the left. Do not force
it. Wait until it moves easily.

temperatures and times during a SelfCleaning cycle for three hours.
